Raising Awareness of the Benefits of Hospice and Palliative Care
HPP Celebrates November’s National Hospice and Palliative Care Month
Hospice is not a place but is high-quality care that enables patients and families to focus on living as fully as possible despite a life-limiting illness. Palliative care brings this holistic model of care to people earlier in the course of a serious illness. November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month and hospice and palliative care programs across the country are reaching out to help people understand all that hospice and palliative care offer. During the month of November, HPP will join organizations in raising awareness of hospice care and demonstrate its importance.
HPP’s resources in hospice and palliative care focus on life-affirmation, and offer support for professionals and families in end-of-life care. Visit the HPP Resource Center to read our Hospice Perspectives Series, where people share their stories of hospice care. While these stories do feature death, they also feature profound hope, compassion, comfort, and joy. They will touch your heart and provide invaluable insight into palliative care and the end of life.
